Just discovered this:
Since Apple may soon block independent repairs and/or obsolete my MacBook Air I know where my next laptop is going to come from... 🤓
Also interesting: https://www.tuxedocomputers.com
They have some interesting laptops and workstation configurations with AMD Ryzen CPUs.
@ParadeGrotesque Damn, 5 year guarantee is such a good selling point. The only country that has 5 year guarantee for hardware in Europe is Norway, and that's like over 1k krone (Norwegian currency) afaik + iirc
@ParadeGrotesque Or was it 1k €, not sure
350 euros for a 5 year warranty extension on Tuxedo.
Kinda pricey. I'd like to know if their computers are worth it, though.
@ParadeGrotesque That sucks, i thought you get it with any of their hardware. It's too pricey imo, you can get like 2 x220-230 Thinkpads. Yeah, they have good advertisement but they might not be as good.
If you have "older" people, they should be on iPad, IMHO. Much less work for the maintainer of said hardware.
Yes, in my family, that's usually me. How did you guess?
And older users are the worst: computer does not work? Too slow? Weird virus thingie? Just replace it!
@ParadeGrotesque hahahahhahaah i somewhat feel your pain, Mr Parade 😂
